acrylic and oil pastel on canvas

48" × 36"

mo gbadura fun alaafia ati ifokanbale ninu aye wa. k’orun yo l’oju rere wa.

i know all the words i need to hear,

i know the truth, i know everything that is mine will find me

i know that but I just want to grieve.

it seems like nothing is sticking, no matter how i try

i know the heavens will open for me,

i know this sea of serenity will hold me in its safe embrace and guide me ONWARD
